        Elementa philosophica de cive.

      Amsterdam, Elzevir, 1657. 12°, gest. Titelbl., 16 Bl., 403 S., Perg. d. Zeit, Perg. etwas verzogen, gebräunt, schönes Exemplar. Preis in CHF: 1210. Zweite Ausgabe des 1642 erstmals als Manuskript gedruckten Werkes. De Cive (lat. Über den Bürger) ist der Kurztitel eines der Hauptwerke von Thomas Hobbes. Diese Schrift trug in der ersten Ausgabe von 1642 den Titel: "Elementorum philosophiae sectio tertia de cive". Die späteren Ausgaben trugen den Titel: "Elementa philosophica de cive". Der ursprüngliche Titel verweist auf Hobbes' Absicht, das Buch als dritten Teil seines philosophischen Systems der "Elementa philosophiae" zu veröffentlichen, das außerdem die Systemteile "De corpore"(Vom Körper) und "De homine" (Vom Menschen) umfassen sollte. Der spätere Titel geht auf einen Vorschlag von Hobbes' Verleger zurück, der aus ökonomischen Überlegungen vorschlug, den Systembezug auszublenden. Politische Unruhe nötigten Hobbes, zuerst "De Cive" zu schreiben, wenngleich dieses Werk systematisch gesehen an den Schluss gehört. Es setzt sich aus drei Teilen zusammen: Libertas (Freiheit), Imperium (Herrschaft) und Religio (Religion). Im ersten Teil beschreibt Hobbes den Naturzustand, in dem der Mensch sich zunächst befindet, und das Naturrecht, das für Hobbes keine ethische Grundlage hat, sondern nur angibt, wie man optimal (aus Eigennutz) handeln soll (Kapitel II, § 1). Im zweiten Teil begründet er die Notwendigkeit, im Interesse aller Individuen eine stabile Regierung zu gründen. Im letzten Teil werden die wichtigsten Behauptungen mit theologischen Argumenten untermauert.Thomas Hobbes (1588 - 1679) englischer Mathematiker, Staatstheoretiker und Philosoph der frühen Neuzeit, der vor allem durch sein Hauptwerk Leviathan bekannt wurde.

        An ACT For LIMITING And SETLING [sic] The PRICES For WINES. At the parliament begun at Westminster the 17th Day of September, Anno Domini 1656.

      Printed by Henry Hills, and John Field, Printers to His Highness., London: 1657 - Commonwealth seal to t.p. Gabler, though not listing this item, does briefly discuss (& list) divers tracts & pamphlets written in the early 1640s voicing public outrage over a contract between Charles I and the Vintner's Company of London- under said contract the Vintners agreed to pay a 46 shilling tax on every ton of Spanish & French wine & also agreed to annually buy a certain amount from English importers. In return, the vintners were permitted to sell cooked victuals (a proviso *not* in their original charter) & allowed to recoup the tax by charging a penny a quart more that the officially published price. The ultimate effect was to give the Vintners' Company a monopoly on the wine trade, all the while enriching the coffers of Charles I. Needless to say, wine drinkers were livid. Parliament eventually responded in the consumers' favor. [Gabler, pp. 2-3]. This act of Cromwell's establishes limitations on prices for Spanish & French wines, a proclamation issued perhaps in memory of the Vintner's Company earlier attempts at profiteering? VG (split developing along fold). Now housed in archival mylar sleeve. Folio: *2. 10-5/8" x 6-3/4". 1st edition (Wing E-1046). Not in Gabler, nor Goldsmith. [2], 2 pp. [Attributes: First Edition]

        Raro documento a firma autografa Whitehall, 2 giugno 1657

      Importante e raro documento in inglese a firma autografa "Oliver P.(rotector)" riferito alla vittoria navale di Robert Blake a Santa Cruz di Tenerife. Cromwell ordina ai Commissari dell'Ammiragliato il pagamento di 100 pounds al Capitano Robert Story "per la sua sollecitudine e cura nel condurre l'Intelligence dal Generale Blake, del cui buon esito piacque a Dio, nella Sua grazia, e guidare la nostra flotta contro gli Spagnoli alle Isole Canarie". La brillante vittoria di Blake del 20 aprile 1657 a Santa Cruz, dove sconfisse un'intera flotta di galeoni spagnoli colme di casse d'oro, suscitò un enorme entusiasmo in Inghilterra. Il giorno seguente in cui venne firmato questo documento si tenne una cerimonia di ringraziamento pubblico e il 10 giugno Cromwell stesso scrisse a Blake inviandogli un ritratto miniato in oro e diamanti come segno di ringraziamento. Blake morì al ritorno del suo viaggio, il 17 agosto, quando la sua nave entrò nel porto di Portsmouth. 4 pagine con testo alla prima, 2 bianche, indirizzo alla quarta.

        Il Microcosmo delle pittura, overa trattato diviso in due libri

      Cesena: Neri, 1657. * Besterman, Old Art Books, p. 93; Schlosser-Magnino p. 614 (rather harsh elsewhere); Cicognara 204; Hollis BAL 6360 (specifying frontispiece and 18 preliminaries); not in Berlin Katalog.. Scarce first edition of this 17th-century survey of Italian painting, and a valuable document for developing Baroque “gusto” by a cultivated amateur. Scannelli follows Mancini’s tripartite division of Italian schools—Roman, Venetian and Lombard, and in an age in which microcosms were everywhere, he compared the whole of Italian painting to a body, likening Corregio to the brain, Titian to the heart, Raphael to the liver (!), and Veronese to the organs of reproduction. According to the Dictionary of Art, Il Microcosmo “stands alongside the works of Mario Boschini (La carta del navegar pittoresco, Venice, 1660) and of Luigi Pellegrino Scaramuccia (Le finezze dei penelli italiani, Padua, 1674), both of whom quoted him. Scannelli’s treatise represents a reaction against the notion, formulated by Giorgio Vasari, that the art of Florence was pre-eminent throughout Italy. He reevaluated the Lombard-Emilian school, led by Correggio, seeing in it an ideal synthesis of the finest achievements of the Venetian (Titian) and of the Roman-Tuscan (Raphael) schools... In taste, he showed classicist inclinations, modified by a liking for vivacity and naturalism, qualities well represented in the art of his ideal painter, Correggio” (Franco Bernabei, DA XXVIII.33-34). Little is known about the author, save that he was a priest and a physician, that he served at the court of Mantua until Francesco I d’Este died, and that he traveled to Milan, Rome and Venice.

        Londinopolis; An Historicall Discourse or Perlustration of the City of London, the Imperial Chamber, and Chief Emporium of Great Britain: Whereunto is Added Another of the City of Westminster

      London: J. Streeter, 1657. 4to., (10 5/8 x 6 6/8 inches). Title-page printed in red and black. Catalogue of Mr. Howell's works at end. Engraved frontispiece portrait of the author leaning against an English oak by Abraham Bosso titled "Heictutus Obumbror" (mounted on slightly heavier contemporary stock), folding panoramic view of London by Wenceslaus Hollar (laid down on heavier contemporary stock, creased, small repair at fold, browning and spotting throughout). 19th-century calf gilt (covers detached). Provenance: Near contemporary ownership inscription on title-page dated 10th December 1661, and copious marginal annotations. First edition, the frontispiece portrait in Pforzheimer's fifth state. With a fine view of London before the Great Fire. James Howell was appointed Royal historiographer to Charles II in 1660 - the apex of a somewhat checkered career as a traveler, diplomat, linguist, writer, parliamentarian and spy. On the eve of the Civil War he was appointed Secretary of the Privy Council, a post he was never able to occupy, instead he was imprisoned in Fleet for eight years during the interregnum for his Royalist leanings. "Londinopolis" was written after his release and is mostly a condensed version of John Stow"s "Survey of London" published in 1598. Stow's book contained amusing anecdotes and descriptions but also detailed accounts of the buildings, social conditions and customs of London. Adams, "London Illustrated" 7; Pennington, "Hollar" 1012; Wing H3091..16mo., (4 6/8 x 3 inches). 7-page publisher's advertisement at end. "Idee de la Sphere, ou Principes sur la Geographique", by M. Bonne, 1723. Fine engraved hand-coloured title-page. 29 double-page engraved hand-coloured maps (without the frontispiece of the armillory sphere and the two unnumbered maps sometimes found with this edition). Fine contemporary cherry red morocco, each cover finely decorated with a border of triple gilt filets, with a fine gilt lily tool at each inner corner, the smooth spine ruled in six compartment, the second with a black morocco lettering-piece, the others decorated with fine gilt lily tools, all edges gilt. A FINE AND ATTRACTIVE COPY of this beautiful pocket atlas including double-page maps of both hemispheres; maps of the continents, including one each of North and South America; and several detailed maps of east and west Europe, including a six-sheet map of the German Empire. Essentially depicting Europe towards the end of the Seven Years War (1756-1763). With its origins in the French-Indian wars in North America two years earlier, the conflict began in Europe with the French siege of British Minorca and Prussia's invasion of Saxony, and ended with the Treaty of Paris in 1763. However the effect of the war was global: it ended France's position as the major colonial power in America, and consequently strengthened Britain's power there and in India. Rizzi-Zannoni was born 1736 in Naples and was renowned from an early age as one of the finest cartographers in Europe. In addition to cartography he worked as an astronomer, surveyor and mathematician. He was the first cartographer to triangulate Poland and helped also in the French and English border survey of America in 1757. While in the service of the Prussian's he was captured by the French at the Battle of Rosbach in early December 1757 and sent to France, where he lived for the next twenty years. In 1781 the Bourbon rulers of Naples made him director of the Topographical Office, one of the first governmental cartographic offices in Europe, where he oversaw the creation of the celebrated and monumental "Geographic Atlas of the Kingdom of Naples", published shortly before his death in 1812. Philipps 633, listing probably by error only 22 maps.

It also contains, attached at the end and paginated separately the 'Advis de Messieurs les Curez de Paris "The Lettres Provinciales, as they are called, are the first example of French prose as we know it today, perfectly finished in form, varied in style, and on a subject of universal importance... Pascal's weapon was irony, and the freshness with which the gravity of the subject contrasts with the lightness of the manner is an enduring triumph. The vividness of and distinction of his style recalls the prose of Milton at its best". (Printing and the Mind of Man).

        L'Amerique en plusieurs cartes, & en divers traittes de geographie, et d'histoire... ses empires, ses peuples, ses colonies, leurs moeurs, langues, religions, richesses, &c

      Paris: Chez l'autheur (sic), 1657. First Edition of this fine set of engraved maps depicting North, Central and South America, including the Caribbean Islands. Illustrated with 15 double-page engraved maps, all hand-coloured in outline. Small 4to., (246 x 178 mm), bound in old calf, recently repaired and rebacked in smooth brown calf, ocean blue leather spine labels. [84] pp. First Edition of this fine set of engraved maps depicting North, Central and South America, including the Caribbean Islands. The North American maps include Florida, Canada (a.k.a. "Nouvelle France"), and California (depicted as an island!). There are extremely detailed engraved maps of Mexico, Guatemala, Granada, Peru, Chile, Brazil, Paraguay, and other Central and South American regions, all hand-coloured in outline at the time of publication. The text relates much of the flora, fauna, and natural history of each, with an emphasis on natural resources available for export. "It is generally accepted that the great age of French cartography originated with the work of Nicolas Sanson" (Moreland & Bannister, Antique Maps, p. 128). Sanson (1600-1667) was one of the great French cartographers of the seventeenth century: he published about 300 maps, the first one when he was only eighteen years old. Following his move from Abbeville to Paris he was appointed "Geographe Ordinaire du Roi." The present volume on America is one of the four octavo volumes published by Sanson on the four continents. Tooley gives publication dates of the "America" volume as being "1656, 1657, 1662 and (1676)" although the first date is a ghost and is not substantiated by any known copies. Some annotations throughout, minor traces of damp or soiling. On the second blank leaf is a useful Table of Maps (in French) in MS. Provenance: "Ex libris Pet. Lemoyn [?] 1682" (early inscription on first blank) -- bookplate of Otto Orren Fisher.

        Astrea: A Romance

      - London -H. Moseley, T. Drink and H. Herringman, 1657 Book. Very Good. Hardcover. An extremely scarce copy ofthe first English publication of Honore D'Urfe's Astrea, generally considered the first classical French novel. 'Translated by a person of quality': attributed to John Davies, (16251693). Davies's fluency in French came from the years he spent in France during the interregnum. He earned his living by translating works from French, Spanish, and Latin. With a vignette title, head pieces and capitals. Volumes II and III of three volumes. Honor d'Urfe, marquis de Valromey, comte de Chateauneuf (February 11, 1568 June 1, 1625) was a French novelist and miscellaneous writer. He was born at Marseille, and was educated at the College de Tournon. A partisan of the League, he was taken prisoner in 1595, and, though soon set free, he was again captured and imprisoned. During his imprisonment he read Ronsard, Petrarch and above all the Diana of Jorge de Montemayor and Tasso's Aminta. It was in Savoy that he conceived the plan of his novel Astrea, the scene of which is laid on the banks of the Lignon in his native province of Forez. It is a leisurely romance in which the loves of Celadon and Astrea are told at immense length with many digressions. The recently discovered circumstances of the marriages of the brothers have disposed of the idea that the romance is autobiographical in its main idea, but some of the episodes are said to be but slightly veiled accounts of the adventures of Henry IV. The shepherds and shepherdesses of the story are of the usual type in pastorals, and they discourse of love with a casuistry and elaborate delicacy that are by no means rustic. The first part of Astrea appeared in 1607, the second in 1610, the third in 1619, and in 1627 the fourth part was edited. In 1628 a fifth was added by D'Urfe's secretary Balthazar Baro. Possibly the single most influential work of 17th century French literature, Astrea has been called the novel of novels, partly for its immense length but also for the success it had throughout Europe: it was translated into a great number of languages and read at every royal court. It set the fashion temporarily in romance narratives. Condition: Rebound in half morocco bindings with marbled boards. Externally sound although atriflerubbed and bumped. Internally, firmly bound. Remarkably bright and clean for the age of these books, with minimal age toning, slight dusting,and just the odd spot. Copperplate ink signatures of Eliza Jeffreyes, onedated 1660 to title pages. Overall: GOOD..

Originalet till det första arbetet, "Enchiridion containing institutions devine and moral" utkom första gången 1640, dedicerades till ärkebiskop Usshers dotter, Elisabeth, och innehöll 300 sentenser. Andra upplagan, som utkom året efter var tillägnad prins Karl, sedermera Karl II, och hade utökats med ytterligare 100.

One of the most influential of the Dutch emblem books, with morals in a combination of Latin verse and prose written by Hugo to accompany the => 45 plates copper-engraved by Boetius à Bolswert. The Jesuit author (1588–1629) designed this devotional volume to follow the three stages of mystical life and meditation: purification (here, Book I: "Gemitus animae poenitentis"), illumination (II: "Vota animae sanctae"), and union (III: "Suspiria animae amantis"). The work was originally published in Antwerp in 1624, and, as stated here, the provincial's permission was renewed on 5 April 1657. The present copy matches Landwehr's collation for entry 353 save for a final printing privilege leaf not present here, cited by Landwehr as bearing a later date; this copy has an integral blank at P6 instead, conforming to the Getty's description of their copy, including their date. Provenance: 19th-century label of the Redemptorists' provincial library of Baltimore; later markings of the Redemptorists' library at Mount St. Alphonsus. DeBacker-Sommervogel, IV, 514–515; Landwehr, Emblem & Fable Books Printed in the Low Countries, 353. Contemporary morocco, covers framed in blind triple fillets, original clasps intact, spine with later hand-inked paper shelving label; binding rubbed overall, especially spine. All edges gilt. Institutional markings as above: front pastedown with 19th-century bookplate and back pastedown with pocket; front free endpaper with early inked shelving annotation; title-page verso with early inked ownership inscription, small shelving ticket, and rubber-stamp; first page of dedication and one text page with rubber-stamp; a bit of typical pencilling. Final privilegium leaf lacking, integral blank instead present. Pages mildly to moderately age-toned, a very few with slight spotting. A nice example of one of the best-received emblem books of the 17th century.

Jonston practiced other occupations in addition to being a physician, and in 1650 he published the first version of his zoology. Jonston is now seen chiefly as a "learned compiler" and his sources for the present work were wide ranging, but probably the main influence was Ulisse Aldrovandi (1522-1605). In addition to the technical merits of this book, Jonston also had a good imagination, as some of the creatures illustrated never existed: hippos with strange features, dragons, unicorns, griffons, and animals with human faces.

        La Beaute du Carmel

      Angers - Chez P. Yvain, 1657 Book. Very Good. Hardcover. An interesting and passionate work about the way of life of the Carmelite Monks. 'Containing the privileges, duties and indulgences of the brotherhood of N. D. Mount Carmel, or of the Scapular of the Virgin'. 4th edition, revised and improved with the Litany of the Family of Jesus and other exercises of devotion. Religious bookplate of Mary Barbara Hale to front pastedown. Monastic library bookplate tipped-in to front pastedown. Two pages of 'The Form of Visiting the Sick' bound in between pages of contents. The Order of the Brothers of Our Lady of Mount Carmel or Carmelites is a Catholic religious order perhaps founded in the 12th century on Mount Carmel, hence its name. The charism, or spiritual focus, of the Carmelite Order is contemplative prayer. The Order is considered by the Church to be under the special protection of the Blessed Virgin Mary and thus has a strong Marian devotion. By the middle of the 17th century the Carmelites had reached their zenith. At this period, however, they became involved in controversies with other orders, particularly with the Jesuits. The special objects of attack were the traditional origin of the Carmelites and the source of their scapular. Condition: In a paper vellum binding. Externally sound though rubbed and bumped. Front hinge held by cords only. Internally, binding is tender, several gatherings working loose. Remarkably bright and clean for its age, a small spill burn running through a few pages. Evidence of light previous worming. A few small closed tears to the title. Overall: GOOD.

        Ars conjectandi, opus posthumum. Accedit Tractatus de seriebus infinitis, et Epistola Gallicè scripta De ludo pilae reticularis.Basel: Impensis Thurnisiorum Fratum, 1713.

      First edition of the "establishment of the fundamental principles of the calculus of probabilities" (Grolier/Horblit). Bernoulli's posthumous treatise was edited by his nephew and is considered the first significant book on probability theory. The title refers to conjectandi, or 'casting' as in the casting of dice. The Ars conjectandi "was the first systematic attempt to place the theory of probability on a firm basis and is still the foundation of much modern practice in all fields where probability is concerned-insurance, statistics and mathematical heredity tables" (PMM). The work is divided into four parts: the first a commentary on Huygens' De ratiociniis in aleae ludo (1657), the second a treatise on permutations and combinations (the former Bernoulli's own term), the third an application of the theory of combination to various games of chance, and the final, and most important, part which contains Bernoulli's philosophical thoughts on probability - as a measurable degree of certainty, necessity and chance, of moral versus mathematical expectation, and of a priori and a posteriori probability. It also contains his theorem, an application of probability to statistics. <br/><br/> PMM 179; Dibner, Heralds of Science, 110; Evans, First Editions of Epochal Achievements in the History of Science, 8; Grolier/Horblit, One Hundred Books Famous in Science,12; Sparrow, Milestones of Science, 21; Barchas, The Making of Modern Science, 46; Norman 216; Honeyman 291.. 4to: 180 x 145 mm.
